We all know consumers spend more during the holiday season than any other time during the year. But did you know 38% of people have already began their yearly shopping extravaganzas?
Online shopping now beats out shopping in stores (for the social media users who responded to the survey) and electronics are at the top of their shopping lists. Seventy-two percent get gift ideas from Facebook, the most popular social network for researching.

Lab42′s data comes from an online survey of 545 social media users between Oct. 18 and Oct. 20.
